An Iranian knowledge-based company, Rah Rooyesh Raad, has developed new agricultural technology solutions to expand the horizons of conventional farming. Early this week, the firm introduced two innovative products, namely a plant factory and a smart miniature greenhouse.
According to Elaheh Akbarnejad, CEO of Rooyesh, the plant factory, which is a smart portable greenhouse, utilizes the Internet of Things and vertical farming technologies to deliver crops. “The product is a two-square meter greenhouse, designed in three stories and six separate culture trays. The space can hold up to 4,000 seedlings,” she said.
